    I'm seriously looking at the Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T case.
    Seems to have everything I want, but I would really like to see a good review on it before buying. Any chance y'all could get your hands on one?

    I think the only difference with the Special Edition is the window and possibly the fan controller.

    BTW, I helped my friend build a system with the Corsair 600T, and I have an Antec P182.

    The Corsair is much wider, but I'm not sure that it has any functional advantages over the Antec, other than bigger fans.

    Yep, that works. Reply

    the way front USB ports is laid out on 600T makes it easier to use multiple ports in case you plug something.
    bigger backplate opening.
    easily removable front+top dust filter.

    Although I kindof wish the fan RPM on 600T control is a volume control instead.

    There's also the P183.

    I like the looks of the Corsair 600T, but for performance and acoustics I actually still have to give the nod to Rosewill's Thor v2 at roughly the same price (if not a bit cheaper). If you don't mind the aesthetics, the Thor v2 will run cooler at roughly the same noise level. Reply

    Samsung's BD drives - they seriously make any case look good with their mirrored tray and a piano-finished glossy black which looks anything but chintzy. Optical drives are largely forgettable affairs, but its hard to ignore the aesthetics. I could get by with a $20 DVD combo, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I paid several times as much just for a better looking BD drive. It looks especially good with black aluminum enclosures, but does seem to class up cheaper plastic cases as well.

    I actually broke the sata connector on mine, buy RMAing it was painless as well, which always counts for something in my book.

    Dustin's reviews are some of the best anywhere, and I like the commitment to cases in a world where work a day component coverage is getting squeezed by so much other gear.

    Looks like well cooled, quiet cases are finally becoming the norm. But, an ATX motherboard is overkill most of the time these days. I guess the case makers are just stuck in the past. Reply

    That pretty much sums up my thoughts on this case. I was thinking NZXT had the best designers with the Phantom, then the H2, but then they put out this thing and its just so ugly in comparison. Reply

    I think it would be cool if Dustin designed a case and 1) dared a vendor to replicate it, and (2) rated cases by how close they adhered to his design. I'm thinking, not of the exterior looks, but functional choices like top/bottom power supply, orientation of drives, positive/negative air pressure, fan placement, and front/top ports. Reply

    Hey Dustin, I feel like I'm following the shepherd a bit here (given one of the earlier comments) but I just wanted to say that I look forward to your case reviews immensely. I remember the beating you took over the Grandia GD04 review - I didn't think those comments were justified at the time and you've just gone from strength to strength since then. Have a good one.

    It's been some time since the review> You should now be able to tell us what case you have that blows this one away -- and costs only $10 more.
